Sarah Palin and Tina Fey Both on Saturday Night Live

Sarah Palin and Tina Fey both appeared on Saturday Night Live last night but it was the least amusing of the Tina Fey appearances. The introduction was primarily notable for having Palin act true to reality in having her refuse to answer questions from the press and instead give the “Live from New York…” line.

Palin appeared once again on Weekend Update in which she acted as if she was declining to proceed with a skit and instead Amy Poehler (in an obviously planned move) performed a rapact instead:

Transcript of the Weekend Update skit is under the fold.

MEYERS – “And now, here to clear up some misconceptions about her campaign, Vice Presidential Nominee Sarah Palin.”

GOV. SARAH PALIN – “Thank you Seth, Amy. And thank you for the chance to come out here. But I’ve been thinking it over and I’m not going to do the piece we rehearsed.”

MEYERS – “But you were so good at it.”

GOV. PALIN – “I know. It was really fun. But my gut is telling me this is a bad idea for the campaign.”

MEYERS – “Are you sure?”

GOV. PALIN – “Yes, after a lot of thought. I think it might just cross the line.”

MEYERS – “Ok, well…in that case, Amy, do you want to do Governor Palin’s part instead, Amy?”

POEHLER – “I guess I could give it a try…”

MEYERS – “Do you remember it?”

POEHLER – “I kinda remember it … (IN HARDCORE RAP DEMEANOR) 1. 2. 3…”

(A Beat kicks in)

“MY NAME IS SARAH PALIN, YOU ALL KNOW ME, VICE-PREZZY NOMINEE OF THE GOP, GONNA NEED YOUR VOTE IN THE NEXT ELECTION, CAN I GET A WHAT-WHAT FROM THE SENIOR SECTION, MCCAIN GOT EXPERIENCE, MCCAIN GOT STYLE, BUT DON’T LET HIM FREAK YOU OUT, WHEN HE TRIES TO SMILE, CUZ THAT SMILE BE CREEPY, BUT WHEN I’M V.P., ALL THE LEADERS IN THE WORLD GONNA FINALLY MEET ME,

(The camera cuts away to Meyers and Gov. Palin enjoying themselves) (JASON SUDEIKIS enters as TODD PALIN and stands next to POEHLER)

TODD LOOKING FINE ON HIS SNOW MACHINE,
SO HOT FOR EACH OTHER, NEED A GO-BETWEEN, IN WASILLA, WE JUST CHILL BABY CHILLA BUT WHEN I SEE OIL, IT’S…”

ALL — “DRILL BABY DRILLA!”

POEHLER –
“MY COUNTRY TIS OF THEE,”
FROM MY PORCH I CAN SEE,

ALL THE MAVERICKS IN THE HOUSE, PUT YOUR HANDS UP, ALL THE MAVERICKS IN THE HOUSE, PUT YOUR HANDS UP, ALL THE PLUMBERS IN THE HOUSE, PULL YOUR PANTS UP, ALL THE PLUMBERS IN THE HOUSE, PULL YOUR PANTS UP,

WHEN I SAY OBAMA,

SAMBERG/ARMISEN –

POEHLER –

SAMBERG/ARMISEN –
“SHE LIKES RED MEAT!”
(A MOOSE ENTERS)

(AMY, SUDEIKIS AND SAMBERG/ARMISEN EXIT AS SNOW FALLS)

GOV. PALIN – “You betcha.”

    I dont think she was particularly good. Either the McCain or SNL crew did not have any faith in her not to make a bigger fool of herself. By the way, here is a website I found that shares all the Sarah Palin Photos and supports Barack Obama! Oh well.

    They didn’t have her do much of anything. In her two skits she just stood or sat there with minimal lines and others handling the actual material of the skit.

    Considering that she once worked as a sportscaster, I would think she could have handled a little more on the show. John McCain has done far more than this whe he as appeared on SNL in the past.
